Hi all, hope everything is good in your neck of the woods. Us? Busy as always.
We had a great time in Buena Vista! Unfortunately no one has sent me copies of their pictures so I can post some. My camera on my phone is blurry so I have to wait for everyone else. But it was still fun! We spent a lot of time in the water, (hence my nasty cold) but it was worth it. Also we did manage to get some writing done while we were there.
Robin and Janet loved Cottonwood Inn and can't wait to go back! I knew they would. It's a wonderful place. We took books up for the owner, Kathy Manning. She had a great library before their fire up there over a year ago and and asked the last time we were up there if we would get her books signed by the authors. Quite a few writers were willing to give away one of their books for her, signed.
It's always a bummer when we have to come home, but at least we have it to look forward to. Maybe in the fall, we'll see.
In the mean time, we have lots to tell you. Our giveaway was a success. There are 2370 Fables out in the world now that weren't there before. I hope most people that downloaded our book read it and leave us reviews. Plus, I hope they look forward to Lore!
Lore is coming along. We are a little behind with things that have popped up, like one of us getting sick, or wedding stuff for my daughter, or even vacations, but we will get it finished. We are on chapter 13 now and I believe it's coming along great. World building is not as easy as it looks when your reading it!
We also will be doing a giveaway on the fan page next week. We have hit, and now over, the 500 mark, which is wonderful! I am still trying to decide what to giveaway or leave the winner with a choice. What would you like to win? A new Kindle Fire? A White Paper Kindle? Or a gift card to Amazon for 100.00 and signed copies of our books?
Maybe you can leave me a comment and let me know or at least let me know if I should leave it as a choice. That would be great!!
Next, I will have a wonderful guest author on here next Friday. Her name is Mary Marcus and she is not only a fellow author, but a friend of mine. We used to be in a critique group together and now we work on social media stuff every few months.
She's new to the social media marketing so please give her a warm welcome next week. She is giving a way a copy of her book The Digger for one lucky person that leaves a comment, so don't miss out!
Well, I think you're all caught up now. Hopefully in a few weeks I will get back to creative writing skills and social marketing ideas. In the mean time, I hope your summer plans are working out and that it proves to be a fun one!
Take care all and don't forget Mary on here next Friday.
